Alexis MacAlister

Location: Barony of Marcaster, Trimaris

Category/Level: Historically Focused/Advanced

About Alexis: I joined the SCA in 1981. Pennsic X was my second event. My grandmother taught me to sew when I was young. I’m a Laurel in the SCA for Fiber Arts. This challenge ties directly into my persona.

Her Project: My goal is to create an early 16th C. Tudor ensemble for a middle-class seamstress. I have wanted to get back into early 16th C. clothing for a while, as it is my first love in historical period and clothing.

The Incomplete Sewing Circle

Group Members: Kale Adriane, Melangell merch Mariot, and Caitriona Meehan

Location: Barony of Marcaster, Trimaris

Level: Historically Focused/Intermediate

About The Incomplete Sewing Circle: We are all members of a Trimarian household who have known each other for 12 years. We have a love of sewing and creating, but are no apt to put ourselves out there. Some one posted this on our kingdom page and Kale talked us all into it. This is all of our first venture into a higher level competition. Kale’s son is in dire need of clothing and we are in dire need of entertainment.

Their Project: 10th century male child clothing. As there are no known child extant findings we will be basing this outfit of adult clothing from Jorvik. It will include pants, tunic, outerwear, and accessories. Fabric will be purchased and all textile pieces will be hand sewn and crafted.
